Step 1: Construction
the idea here is to mount the pan to the crutch - this is done by first cutting crutch right below handle using tubing cutter for clean look or hack saw - be sure to file edges
next is to bend the tubing - this can be done with EMT bender electricians use or else a larger diameter pipe slid over crutch tubing to add leverage
widen tubes slowly each side a little at a time until they match the pan you are attaching to - then drill holes through pan and crutch tubes and use stainless hardware and counter sink holes inside pan
last step is to attach solar light by cutting off stake portion then drill and tap plastic 10/32 if possible or fashion some sort of solid bracket to hold light securely
add oil and corn then enjoy - good luck
